Side Inlet - Air Swivel (Flushing Head) is a drilling tool attached to the top of the drill pipe, primarily used for "reverse circulation" applications. Coinciding reverse circulation (RC) pipe and/or tubing are connected with a compressor or pump to allow circulation of drilling mud, air or water.

A Flushing Head works by allowing the drill pipe to rotate freely while the side hose remains stationary. In reverse circulation applications, an Air Swivel allows the cuttings to be flushed upward into the pipe at the same time allowing cuttings to return through a customizable port through which compressed air is blown.

Air Swivel (Flushing Head) drilling tools may be customized to accommodate threaded splined or flanged upper and lower connections, allowing connection to any pin or box to meet specific application requirements. We specialize in construction drilling tools and custom drilling tools.
